RB Raheem Mostert requests trade from 49ers, agent says

41

Running back Raheem Mostert is requesting a trade from the San Francisco 49ers, his agent announced Wednesday. Agent Brett Tessler tweeted that the trade request comes after “months of unproductive talks” with the 49ers on adjusting his contract. “After months of unproductive talks with the 49ers about fairly adjusting Raheem Mostert’s contract (which paid him for special teams) we have requested a trade. Disappointing that it would come to this for a guy who led all NFL RBs in YPC & helped lead them to the Super Bowl,” he wrote. Earlier this offseason, the 49ers traded running back Matt Breida to the Miami Dolphins. The other running backs on the team’s roster include Tevin Coleman, Jeff Wilson and Jerick McKinnon, who hasn’t played in two seasons because of knee injuries. Mostert is scheduled to be paid a base salary of $2.575 million this season and is due $2.875 million in 2021 as part of a three-year contract
